and that people are going to want to come to san francisco and that they will not have any trepidation again, i think the fact that everything is booming right now in san francisco would go a long way to say that we kind of got this thing figured out, but we can always get better. before i leave and pass it over to the panel and back over to audrey, maybe for about five minutes i can take any questions. i never want to leave without hearing it from me. ok, jocelyn, they are all happy. thank you.

in the world is done that. to the extent that san francisco can be proud of so many things, one of the things that i am very proud of when i think of san francisco is the fact that we have always been at the forefront of civil rights and at the forefront of lgbt rights. and there is a place in this world where i hope the city would be open to recognizing the contributions of an openly ldbt person. i would hope that that place would be san francisco. one of the things that struck me about this conversation is something that we learn about harvey milk. when he was first elected, he understood the significance of his election. i would like to share with you a part of what he said. it goes, the hope speech often talk about. this is what he said to use his own words: "two days after i was elected i got a phone call and the voice was quite young. it was from al tuna, pennsylvania. the person said things. you have to elected a people so that young child and thousands of people know that there is hope for a better tomorrow." without hope, gays, blacks, seniors, the "ss" give up. without hope life i

that we call investors that kept us here in san francisco and goes to the front office comprised of men and women dedicating their lives to this team and goes to baseball operations and the fierce -- the fierce, the ferocious drive of brian saibian and his staff and the most storied manager in san francisco giants history and his teachers and coaches and on to the training and medical staff, but inevitably it will always draw right on the backs of the men who have numbers on their backs. it's up to them to forge together a chemistry that allows them to believe in one another and this they did. this they did. and with sergio romo threw the last pitch in the 2012 season and he struck out miguel cabriara this group in one pitch they justified -- they justified that expectation, and now they stand before you today humbly stand before you today, and their accomplishment has matched the verrossity of your adoring devotion. no other way to say it and to allow them to plant a plag and once again they can say it loudly "we are the giants. we are san francisco, and we are the world champions"
the contributions that laura arriola of the puc has made to the san francisco small business community, providing excellent customer service to san francisco's small businesses. laura helps businesses comply with capacity charge regulations. serving in a much broader role, office of small business staff knows that miss arriola has served as the liaison to the department, constantly going above and beyond her duties in order to assist the small business puc issues. miss arriola exemplifies what the small business community can achieve. congratulations. >> thank you very much. >> would you like to say a few words? >> i have worked for the city over ten years and i think that the city does a great job. and most of the time, if you can explain the problems, or explain the issues, the answers they may not be the ones that our customers, our clients, our citizens are looking for, but if they understand the issues, then they are satisfied. and usually happy. and sometimes it's just explaining it. so i am happy to be a part of the city family. i am happy to help with any and all problems. if the puc

's obviously some incredible events that have occurred. and for me as mayor of san francisco, i know that the chief and i and supervisor cohen and dr. campbell and the whole public health staff have always had dialogue and been concerned especially when there is an uptick in june of this year on violent crime and homicides in san francisco. and, so, we've been working together on creating a program which i announced some months ago, the ipo program, the ability to work on things that would interrupt and intervene earlier in the behavior patterns of people that would be both victims and perpetrators of violent crime in our city. to support the police department and law enforcement system of doing more predictive policing using both data and technology to help us do that. and then, of course, i think the most important part is to organize our communities and work with community-based organizations, families, religious groups, and everybody that's on the ground to find more ways to intervene in violent behavior out there and utilize resources such as education systems, our community job
of san francisco. thank you very much. any questions? >> this is a question that i ask of all of the applicants, particularly for property where four units or less, and its residential. sometimes i get e-mails from homeowners that are getting the property reappraised and how it would be frustrating as far as the length of time to hear back in the financial hardship they may endure during the time period. >> many members of the public come to the hearing process. they are either unprepared, or don't know what to bring to the hearing process. we use it as an opportunity to educate the public even when i'm a rule against them i try to give them an explanation about why i have reached that conclusion and what they might do to obtain assistance. i know the last hearing there was a woman who spoke chinese. and she brought a flyer. it was written in chinese. she really needed assistance. i was able to communicate with them. next time she should bring an interpreter or someone who can help her through the communication process. >> i assume we also provide interpretation if requested
so, the green button here we are in san francisco, i can say with some public comfort that pg&e is a signatory to the green button, download my data. and basically you go to the utility website. you can download your own green button data which by itself is, well, i'm an energy guy, an energy geek. i consider with confidence. it is not interesting, necessarily, but when you take your green button data and you give it to some companies, they have amazing things they can do with that green button to, again, save you money. something as simple as if you look at your green button which is kilowatt hours for those that are engineering minded, a line grab if you think about t some companies today can look at your green button and figure out if your refrigerator is broken function need a new air conditioner. that's real money if you think about it at a commercial or industrial scale. that is one data set. to your other question about what is the federal government doing, we're seeking not just an energy, but across the government to engage entrepreneurs and innovators across all the
and god bless the city and county of san francisco. today i want to ask a question. do other committees or groups have public phone calls, where when they have public comment, like they say for the board of sups if i wanted to make a public comment over the phone, is that available to me? >> hi, mr. dennis, i apologize to you, there is a problem with our bridge line. if we could have someone from the control room come up here and mr. dennis, if you wouldn't mind staying on the line. we're going to get the bridge line working and then try to get back to you. perhaps we can go to our next item and as soon as we get the bridge line working, we want the people in the room here and the council members and the audience at home and people who are rely on captioning to have the benefit of all that you are saying. >> thank you. >> could you just hold for a bit and we'll get someone up from the control room to assist us and move on to our agenda and get back to you as soon as we can. >> thank you very much. >> i apologize for the technical difficulties. >> okay. > >> all right then. we'll
into the future, taking this, working with some other departments like san francisco arts, we're creating access for people, creating efficiency with the government being able to manage transactions, creating a platform for people to actually interact with the city on a level that hasn't been done before. so, ideally, using the san francisco rec and park, the future san francisco arts app, using our mobile commerce to manage that is creating jobs, revenue, and efficiency for the public and tourists to be able to navigate san francisco in a way that hasn't been done before. thank you. >> all right. (applause) >> so, we're going to show another application from motion launch, the founder and ceo, john, will be sharing some of the work that they're doing. they're based here out of san francisco and they've got a great announcement to make. >> i am jon mills. i'm ceo of motion loft. we started about three years ago developing sensors that we could place around cities that would give us some analytics on how people move around cities and how vehicles drive around cities. so, currently we have 16 neig
would like to thank the city and county of san francisco, also parks and rec. as a team we are proud to represent glens and very proud represent san francisco. we look forward to another successful season representing san francisco and glens in the coastal division. (applause) >> my name is dylan rogers; i play for the san francisco junior glens u11 team. they were formed in the spring of 2009. i was of the first tryout one sunday morning for the formation of a ua team. four years later the club has 30 teams for all age groups, boys and girls club. the goal of the club is to provide soccer for any kid who wants to play while keeping fees at a minimum. i have been on the team for two years. we entered our first tournament just over one year ago and we beat them in the final. since then we have entered three more tournament, winning two and getting to the semi final of the third. we won the association cup in sacramento in december becoming the first san francisco team to do so. also won the league this year with 8-2 record, quite an achievement for our team in the first year as
area than they do in the san francisco school district. we have to change that. this appropriation is about recognizing that while money is not the only answer, money is part of the answer. this is about closing the achievement gap which is one of the single most important challenges that we are facing as a city. that is why this vote is so important. and so i would once again - and i have a lot of respect for my colleagues and i understand the reasoning that has been reticulated - but the reason why i am against, by releasing money that the district is entitled to, we are not doing anything -- it would be a mistake for san francisco not to make this choice now. for everyday, every month that we delay making that additional expenditure the achievement gap with some students is going to grow wider and will become more expensive to close it. i hope that we support this item. and again i want to thank supervisor kim and the other cosponsors. and i look forward to working with our new colleagues. >> president: supervisor kim. >> supervisor kim: i'm glad that supervisor mar mentioned i
. he is a preacher, pastor, teacher, musician and a san francisco giant fanatic. [applause] and to all of you here today this issue of violence is a complex and challenging one. no one need to be self rightious about it because there is no instant answer to the things that all of us must. do i am impressed with the religious communities coming together. at least we should know that the issue today is peace is not the absence of noise. it's the presence of justice. when there is no justice there is no peace and when there is poverty and pain people search out for a bomb and put off that bomb. the excitement is that we're here today with each other. we at best can reach out to those who are not here because it's not just a matter can be solved with an enlightened church. the killing in kansas city, a football player, his wife and himself. three or 4 nfl players say they carry a gun and with basketball players the same. somewhere we're sitting around watching san francisco play miami excited who will win that game. of the tens of thousands that watch those games those role models
regionally with our data and we can join and continue to be in the great city of san francisco. so, i want to thank all of the people, all of the different starting up companies here and those that are inventing with us, thank them for celebrating innovation month in such a exemplary way. and i think we're going to have a lot more to announce before this month is out, including on our way to the world series. thank you very much. (applause) >> now, if i may introduce our partner in crime here, board president david chiu who is also going to be complimenting us with all of his efforts at the board. come on up, david. (applause) >> good morning. i am incredibly excited to be here today for a couple of reasons. first of all, the hatchery is one of my favorite places in the city. there is truly a bee hive of activity of the newest innovations that san francisco will be famous for. i also love the fact that just a couple of blocks from here is where our san francisco giants are moving on to the world series. but just in this room, all of you are giants and making sure that san francisco is the
calendar, are considered to be routine by the san francisco public utilities commission, and will be acted upon by a single vote of the commission. there will be no separate discussion of these items unless a member of the commission or the public so requests, in which event the matter will be removed from the calendar and considered as a separate item. >> dr. jackson. >>> i didn't hear too well. you were saying you were removing this? >> i prefer not to. but i did not want to prevent you from making comments on it. >>> well, i'm glad it's being removed. >> you want it removed? >>> yes. >> is there a motion by a member of the committee? i don't want it removed, but if someone else does, that's their option. all right. >> aren't they allow today do that? >>> are you going to put it over to another time? >> no, no, i don't want to do that. >> just to be clear, in removing it from consent, that's essentially what you're doing by allowing someone to testify on an individual item. but then you're going to call it. you're not removing it from the calendar. you're going to call it and vote on it
about kind of how san francisco came in in terms of actually ading the officer. more broadly how do you think san francisco compares and what are some of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get the community together or you have people actually talking about it because the demand side, as we were talking about it, will be there because there is going to be someone there. there have to be people working with it who are getting out there. i think this is what this city is going to be really powerful. in terms of other cities doing as well, chicago is doing some really interesting stuff. scary cool stuff. they're taking 3 in 1 data, potho
broker in san francisco. i have been here for half of my life, true in a couple of months. i have been a real estate attorney for the last 15 years here san francisco and for a few years in oakland. for the last 12 years i have worked primarily as a real estate broker. i have quite a bit of experience with the appraisal process. i am a homeowner here in san francisco. that is in true; i have been a renter for the last two months; for the previous 15 years, an owner of single-family homes and a few condos and also the landlord. i understand all of those perspectives. i also was the president and secretary depending on the year of homeowners associations; i have been and adjunct professor; work with the san francisco ethics boards of the san francisco association of realtors. i have sat on the san francisco association of realtors arbitration board. i have chaired the forms committee for the san francisco association of realtors, the education committee and on the california association of realtors form and education committees. i work with vanguard properties, risk assessment. i revie
as a deputy city attorney and then became general counsel of the school district of san francisco and through that became involved in politics and at some point decided to run for office. >> you have lived in san francisco for awhile. why did you decide to live here? supervisor campos: i have always felt that san francisco is unique. i have always loved this city. i think that san francisco is -- it represents the best of what this country has to offer. it is a place that welcomes people from all over the world, from all over the country, and is a place that not only tolerates, but actually increases diversity. it is a place that is forward thinking in terms of how it looks at issues, and it has always felt like home. as a gay latino man, i felt this was a place where i could be happy. >> why did you get involved? supervisor campos: i think a lot of the past to do with my being an immigrant. i am very grateful for all the opportunities this country has given me. only in this country could someone like me have an opportunity to go from having nothing to go to stanford, harvard law school, and
to san francisco. is there a procedure in place for dealing with these and will the provider be notified about the time sheet and there will be a delay with the pay? >> so currently, when there is an issue with the time sheet, there is some problem with it, what happens is our staff will look at. they analyze the problem and if they can pay it out, without going through too much trouble, we pay it out. but if we can't, we contact the provider and work through whatever problem it is. and sometimes we have to issue replacement time sheet. and in the new system, that is largely what will happen. the can time sheet processing facility is much more sensitive than our staff are in terms of things that it doesn't like. for example, you can't write in any other kind of pen besides black ink. and you can't stick a sticky note onto the time sheet. and you can't fold the time sheet. various, little persnickety things that are bad design in my opinion. [ laughter ] a lot of those rejected time sheets will all come to us, but they come back to us quickly and electronically. we'll see an electronic i
. >> commissioner dooley? >> we discussed the idea that in san francisco retained the 4 15, we were acknowledging it would run out. but what we would prefer is to therefore have a new area code assigned exclusively to san francisco at that time. that is one thing that we had felt might work well. because we have such a strong identity as a city and county of san francisco, this might be a good time to move that forward. that idea we would retain 415 and add our own overlay >> commissioner dwight? >> so we discussed this at length and i think i agree with you that the overlay, just a straight overlay is the least disruptive to all businesses, because obviously change is expensive. even in the online world you have to change numbers and hunt down everywhere where your number appears, whether it's yelp or any google search. where we came to this position is that the cpuc obviously is considering these two options. and the one option of doing this geographic split is fundamentally flawed. why would you split san francisco in half? that is kind of ridiculous. we think of area code as having some ge
own cases, and supervising a team of attorneys as well. >> why did you choose to live in san francisco? >> i always assumed i would go back to the philadelphia area since that is where my family is. i was always interested in san francisco in terms of what it is as a city, its culture, it's amazing lgbt community. i came out here for a summer, fell in love with it. i have been interested in politics since i was a kid. i worked on campaigns as a teenager. i was involved campaign against senator jesse helms when i was in college. when i cannot hear, and was not initially involved politically. -- when i came out here, i was not initially involved politically. i helped to build the lgbt community center. i started doing campaigns. i gradually got involved in democratic party politics. i got involved in the alice b. toklas democratic club. i ran for the democratic central committee in 2004. i ended up sharing the committee. it was a gradual process for me. by the time i started thinking about running for supervisor, it made sense because of my involvement in the community and in politics. >
. >> good evening and welcome to the san francisco public library. i'm joan jasper and i'm with the department of exhibitions and public programs at the library and i want to welcome you it our program tonight, our incredible evening with playwright and author phillip congatongas. this program is in connection with an exhibit, two exhibits, that we have up on the 6th floor. the first one is called if they came for me today, the japanese american internment project, and also we have another exhibition called relocation and resiliency, the japanese american internment in california. and both of those are up on the 6th floor and this is the last week, so if you haven't a chance to see these exhibits yet, we really encourage you to go on up and see them because they will be closing on sunday. we really want to thank community works for bringing the exhibit if they came for me today to the san francisco public library. and here to tell you a little bit more about community works is ruth morgan, so help me welcome ruth morgan. thank you. . >> thank you. i do hope that if you ha
is jim. and i come to the meetings in san francisco. a lot of people i know have a case worker at golden gate. that is why i came up here to tell you a little bit about the golden gate. the golden gate is a very big place. you need to check it out. 375 stevenson, right off of market street between market and mission. come by there. the golden gate is very good people and will always, always help other people who need help. thank you very much. >> thank you, sir. are there any further comments from those present? >> michael nulty. i am the program director of tenants association coalition of san francisco; which has been operating in san francisco for 15 years. we deal with people that are in supportive housing units. low-income buildings in san francisco. we have over 1,000 -- we have over 100 developments as part of our coalition. i wanted to speak to mail deliveries for those that are on special diets. i wanted to also mention that the accessibility of information that daas needs to update their resource guide. when i saw that, it's a very heavy thing. i don't want to take it home
. ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the wednesday, january 9, 2013, san francisco police commission meeting. you will hear later the chief will be with us soon. he is currently attending a juvenile justice commission meeting down the hall. so he is in the building. tonight is our first meeting of 2013. before we move into the meeting we're going to have a presentation of certificates of appreciation for some really incredible work done by both civilian and two of our san francisco police officers. i see family members here. so we're going to do that. but before i do that, before he gets here, i want to make an announcement, something i'm proud of. our own dr. marshall, who is the president of the mega boys club and is on our commission will have to leave early to catch a flight tomorrow. he's been summoned to the white house to be part of a panel dealing with gun violence. he just found out about that. so if he's a little late, he's working on the arrangements. that's an incredible honor for one of our police commissioners. he ran a gun buy back program and we had a great conversation today
, the san francisco suspects who come forward when you have problems and help you to fix them, and i will end with that because they make a difference, and i will end with that, and i brought something with me i want to show you. that's the emergency plan that i as the first all hazards emergency plan that we wrote for this city. it was praised up and down the coast. you have a better one now, and could you reach that little book on top? yeah. and in my navy training -- when you get in an airplane you don't get in and the key in. you put this on your lap and do all the check offs. well, having been a chief executive i know their lips get tired when they read more than one page. sorry, but you know, but anyway i put this book together, and i mainly for the mayor and his primary assistants, so when bad stuff happened in the middle of the night you could pull this off of your bureau and go to the first three or four things that you have to do in order to save lives and property, and i understand this has a grandfather. okay, which is great. so thank you very, very much. it was
of a bay area millionaire. the "san francisco chronicle" is reporting that it could be connected to a notorious east oakland gang. the paper says that recover very kumra was killed -- ravi kumra was killed not long after a prostitute revealed details about his mansion to members of "the money team" one of the gangs oakland police blame for a recent spike in violent crime. at least two of the three accused killers are believed to have ties to that gang. >>> we also learned today a san jose mother's frightening story of a kidnapping attempt was made up. police sprang into action tuesday after a man reported a man tried to grab her 2-year- old daughter out of her arms. police canvassed her neighborhood even released a sketch of a suspect. today the mother came clean and admitted she made it up. police are not saying why she did that. but she could face charges. >>> they say that they are living and they are fed up with living in these deplorable conditions so today some tenants tried to turn the tables on their landlord. they say he has ignored the
now have live entertainment in san francisco, which allows amplified music until 10:00 p.m. if the conditions has no entertainment, and the entertainment, it also includes this limited live provision. we have determined in the city that this legislation is good -- good legislation. there's no conditional use requirement to have this. a lot of people today want to have food, drink, and be able to have some music. how can we get the limited live entertainment excluded from the know amplified or no live entertainment excluded on the transfers? >> that is going to mostly driven locally. most of the conditions you'll ever see on an abc license are because we rely, to a great extent, on the police department and local officials to determine what is best for their communities. i'm not trying to pin this on you guys or blame you guys, but we do try to work with you. we do not tend to want to overrule the police department very often. now that said, i get a fair number of petitions and appeals to me. typically, they are from the neighbors. i want to see that there is actually a pr
